Comment: The collaborative act between Obasquiat, and Dancing Deadlips has spawned two compositions. Every Time, All the Time is long-running and by its nature it is fairly oneiric based on otherworldly hypnotic vowel effects which in turn are amplified by sublime yet reverberating echoes and occasional sounds of the shakers; thereafter it starts off again, this time with the plucking of strings which in turn are reverb-drenched again which are accompanied by even more hypnotic vowel effects. The composition is besieged by the short spans of silence. Maurice Unraveled (what a quip!) is remarkably shorter and more acute because the piece starts off with more turbulent progressions involving rusty loops and a strident improvised noise snippet. The chaos might be mother of the order to prompt the artists to finish in the roundabout manner (more profoundly, finishing off with the aforementioned corroded loops). The result is bewildering and obviously compelling the listener to come back and enter its threshold once again. All in all, it is a great listening time.
